Abstract—The optimization of a standalone photovoltaic pumping system with integrated maximum power point tracking (MPPT) to reach an optimum power transfer is addressed in this paper. Due to the low efficiency of the solar photovoltaic, some MPPT methods are proposed to continuously deliver the highest power to the load under different weather condition. In the present work we present a comparative study between two maximum power point tracking that are perturb-and-observe method and incremental conductance method. The induction motor driven pump that is powered by a solar array is controlled by the field oriented control.
